Meatballs & Pneumonia....

Last night Ethan couldn't get enough of my homemade meatballs. I mean, really, I think he had 3 servings!!! He was happy and having a wonderful time with his sister but it went downhill fast....







And this is Ethan tonight....




He woke up in the middle of night with a horrible cough. He was very restless and uncomfortable and by this morning he was having trouble just keeping his head up. This is our reality now that we know he is a Mito Kid. Ethan has always had trouble getting over a simple cold or stomach bug but now we know why....guess that's supposed to make it easier?

We headed to Dr. T first thing this morning and Ethan was diagnosed with Pneumonia. He was having trouble keeping his oxygen up. They gave him 2 breathing treatments and that seemed to help a lot and after 2 hours he was able to keep his oxygen up so we headed home. Yeah! We are doing breathing treatments every 3 hours throughout the night and he is on a high dose of antibiotics. Hoping he does well all night and we don't end up in the hospital! That is the goal now....
